Yay Tempest! At home! But tiny! It's a 12-inch/30cm tall 1/6 scale replica of the 1981 Atari arcade cabinet, designed and sold by New Wave Toys. And it even comes with a little coin door and tiny quarters!

  • Also they give you 5 additional spinner knobs but they are all the same size. What's the point?

  • I bought one. My only beef is that the key to the arcade Tempest was the spinner wheel. It was free rolling so you could get from one side to the other in an instant which is crucial at the higher levels. You use the side of your palm to roll around. The spinner on the New Wave Toys mini is click-based so you eventually you can never get to where you need to go. If you want to play the first 4 levels, this works, but for experienced players, you will be frustrated. That said, it's easier than moving a 300 lb real machine into your house.

  • Tempest was my favorite game growing up. I'm getting one of these machines. I wish they would do Phoenix which is an obscure shooter but was always one of my favs in the arcades. Game on!

  • Saw one of these at the show and the screen is just too small to be playable. I would be all over a larger size since the build quality is amazing!

  • That is absolutely amazing! That was my game in the day, played it from the first days it was released, and won many t- shirts and trophies for high score over a six month period... When you put the setting to highest sensitivity, perhaps the mini knob will be more playable? Anyway, mind blown!

  • Others have probably mentioned this, but if you can find a rotary encoder in a compatible shape and pinout it should be pretty easy to swap out the knob for one that doesn't have detents (the clicking). The fast spins being ignored is an implementation/software problem, unfortunately, and probably can't be fixed without very invasive changes. An encoder with a higher pulse density might at least make it feel better as you wouldn't have to spin it so hard to move fast, but it would also lower the max rotation speed for overwhelming the sampling code.

  • While doing some research on the original arcade knob, I found that the original game used an optical rotary encoder. This would explain the difference in the feel of the knob on the replica. I imagine that the replica uses a modern digital rotary encoder vs the old style optical rotary encoder.

  • Rotary encoder for the 'spinner' - Not dissimilar to the roller on the average mouse. You'll notice the 'indents' are similarly placed! They're also commonly used in cars for radio/stereo controls!

  • Cool mini-arcade. I started buying pinball machines many years ago. I played the hell out of each game for about a month after purchase. Then my playtime tapered off to a trickle. When I got up to six machines my game "room" was full and I hardly played with them except when friends dropped by. I enjoyed working on them more than playing them actually. I eventually sold them for a very nice profit and now I collect PC games on Steam and GOG. They take up a lot less room but aren't nearly as much fun to work on. Congrats on 1M dude. That's huge!

  • I think my only real gripe is that they went with micro-USB for the power input. It's just so fragile compared to a barrel connector or USB-C. Admittedly, if I had this adorable toy, it'd have its own cable full-time, even after the novelty wore off and it stopped getting daily play, so maybe that wouldn't be as big a deal as I'm making it out to be.

  • Did the original arcades ever have "firmware" updates. Naturally, there was some sort of disk, in the form of a cartrage, or cart for short but a "firmware update" would simply consist of replacing the cart with a updated version.

  • I love these little replicas, although I don't have the money to buy them. I tried one of the half-size Arcade1Up machines that included Tempest, among other games, and the "spinner" was horrible. It was like you were turning a screw going into a block of wood. The thing was so stiff, it made the game unplayable. BTW, are the miniature coins actually metal, or just plastic?
